Wedding After Party Dresses for the Bride for a Celebratory Outfit Change

Brides have started to wear more than one dress on their wedding day, and who can blame them? They’re in the spotlight from the moment the ceremony starts until the end of the reception—and any extra festivities after that—which warrants having multiple looks throughout the celebrations. Besides, who wants to dance all night in a long train, veil, and layers of tulle when you can change into epic wedding after party dresses like a feathered mini or a slinky chainmail slip? Whether you call it the reception outfit, the send off look, or the after party dress, there are plenty of festive options.

We’ve seen plenty of all-white looks grace the runways, whether they were designed with brides in mind or not. (Although bridal-specific lines from Christopher Kane and Self Portrait suggest otherwise.) A little white dress, silver sequin shift, or ivory blazer dresses could all be potential options, it’s just how you interpret them. Plus, options like these don’t require fittings or private appointments like traditional wedding gowns. From elegant crepe sheath and ivory cupcake minidresses, to sequin embellished and feather trimmed midis, these all work perfectly as wedding after party dresses for brides to be.
